Angry Birds Danger Above 3 Star Walkthrough Level 8-9

Our strategy for Danger Above level 8-9 is to launch the first Black bird to land on the small wooden block above the first mustache pig. A path should be created to fire the next Black bird through the wooden supports of the middle tower. Detonate the bird as far to the right as possible, clearing most pigs. If the far-right tower is intact, blow it to smithereens since you will earn more than 10,000 points in damage. Then take out the final pig. The score in the video below is 140,240.

I’m trying someone else’s method….as soon as you complain, you finally 3-star the level. My complaint? The pigs all pop before I can rack up the damage. Anyone find a one-bird “sweet-spot”?

Found a 2 birder, gives a good score IMO.

1. Fire black bird over the central tower and hit the far right building’s side. Usually gets rid of the small and helmet pig. This shot is to break the big tower’s support from the other side.
2. Second black bird should be flung at an almost 0 degree angle, breaking the horizontal stone block. The tower falls and pops all the pigs, most of the time.

Still improving though. Lots of debris left when I first use this method.

This is interesting, as I didn’t think that a shot reversal would work in this case, since there is more material on the left side, but it worked. You’re right about the debris, @kartflyer, as it didn’t destroy much, but I got enough of a boost to get my iPad over the threshold, with a small improvement to boot.

I used @KartFlyer‘s method, thanks for that post, and hit 141,880 on the second attempt. Before I came here I was basically using the method described by AMslimfordy but could not get beyond 129k.

that’s the one quirk/bug in the game that constantly enrages me….debris is still falling and flying and it starts tallying up the final score…i coulda had another 5 or 6 thousand points from flying concrete

By teenietaters

Thank you many times over Kartflyer!!! I have been trying the video method for 5 flipping days, over and over again and only getting as close as 139,780…I read yours tonight, tried it twice and racked up over 143,000 second try…Well done and thanks again!

First bird over the top (kartflyer), don’t wait for tower to fall, it ruins you trajectory.
Second bird high arc into the triangular stone block on top of the cubicle stone block.

The tower was falling while the 2nd bomb detonated. Lot’s of blocks broke and exploded on the fall since the basement was destroyed by 2nd bird. 152k

You’re welcome @harmkt glad it worked out fine. Be sure to watch the @e-star video below. It also gives 152k.

Same first bird like Kartflyer and z0z0, but the second bird I shot with a high lob. Landing it on the vertical stone plank, breaking it and lodging it self down the two towers. Everything collaps, 2 birds left and I got 152120.

Here is my video, enjoy!

@e-star Thank you for the video and the “combo” strategy of Kartflyer and z0z0. This is a perfect example of team work that “worked great”. Improved the score by 9k+. The first bomb bird is the hardest to get it to land in the “sweet” spot of the right structure so 30k can be achieved. The only aiming guide for the first bomb bird is to be as close as possible to the top right triangle tip. If bomb bird slightly touches the base of the sling, the second launch ususally arrives on top of the little wooden block.

i just got the top score and beat the #2 by 8k. i’m in shock. used e-star’s video for the first shot, and then the main tower started crumbling to the left immediately. everything pretty much broke, and i used the second bird to kill the last piggy.

if anyone can tell me a way to post a screenshot, it would be really appreciated. i think i have 3-4 #1 scores and i haven’t proved any of them yet.

happy flinging

Man this level infuriated me. I was stuck at 149,950 for days.

The method I used was to fire the first bird at a very high arc, getting it to crash through the wood before it exploded. If it brought the middle tower down there was no way to get three stars unless total damage was over 90k for the first shot.

Then I would fire the second bird into the far right and hope for the best.

If it didn’t bring down the tower the next bird was shot through the piece of wood and into the base bringing it all down and hoping for a lot of structural damage.

Basically this level is hoping the cookie crumbles correctly. :)

By Wildoak

I’m not sure if this is listed in the unstable levels but it does qualify. Once the tower fell and actually ruined my first throw. But I found that if you wait the tower will lean far to the left. With a high lob just clearing the tower it will land almost at the base and take out almost everything. I almost got a 1 bird but the bottom left pig didn’t die. Ended up 2 birding it for 146,390.

I got a one birder but still only managed a score of 142320 which didn’t even beat my existing score. How annoying?

By SweetP (@sweetp)Score: 152,680

I landed the second bomb bird as @e-star, but the tower did not collapse so it is possible for the bird to settle too deeply in the hole before exploding. On the next go, I manually detonated the bomb halfway down and that worked to topple the tower and take out the remaining pigs.

Got lucky! 157,490
Went high with the first bird, just touching the right triangular top block of the tower. This slowed down birdie a bit, and he fell down between the vertical block on top of the glass and the two vertical blocks just left of that. Didn’t detonate manually, breaking nearly everything, leaving left moustached pig to be blown away with second bird.

By Ubermom

Can make the 2 bird shot every time but w/o enough debris points! Actually managed 167k with 4 shots but the stinker in the block of ice survived! What the heck? :-)

@hwong0715 Wow, nice score you have there! :) It’s so much higher than all the other top scores, could it be a typo? If not, do you have any tips on how you got it?

Hi kelani. I assure u it is not a typo. A pure lucky shot! I used e-star’s vid for the first shot and everything came down. The next bird was to clean up the last piggy. U can read my comment above from February 2013. Wow it’s been a while lol. Happy flinging

Maybe you could send your .lua file to AMSlimfordy, so that he can check that no PU were used for your Top Score. I know a few levels in various AB games where there is a 10k difference between the top scorer and the 3rd, therefore your lead is not unique, however it is always better to check that nothing weird occured.

158300, played for about 30 to 40 minutes, finally had a great first shot for 99k I think it was. All that was left was two pigs on the far right and the tuctures there. My second shot landed perfectly where I wanted between the two. 2 extra birds. Snagged screenshot of final score will try and post it even tho only 19th place :-)

159710/2 after 116k after the 1st, which was as in e-star video. more in particular, was playing to crash through (first the diagonal and then) the vertical stone on the left in the right structure (this means that half of the time the bird doesn’t get there, as it hits the tower), waiting a little bit before activation. the goal is to clear everything to the right of the tower (for a 50k+ score) first making room for the debris of the tower falling to the left after. never happened both to me thus far (clearing everything to the right of the tower once every ten minutes; breaking the horizontal wood being the hard part), but should easily give a 160k+-score, but 169k is a lot (my best score with three birds was 155k). another great level for practising your skills in staring down swaying towers :-)

Try using @e-star ‘s shots, but reverse them. It takes a few repeats, but the middle tower needs to fall, AND you need to have 80K-100K after the first shot.

@stocktoad hit it for me with reversing the shots from @e-star video. Thanks both of you.
